Ish Smith felt the love for the Philadelphia 76ers, but it wasn’t returned according to reports and now the point guard has agreed to join the Detroit Pistons on a three-year, $18 million deal.
A source said Smith will get a three-year $18 million deal with the #DetroitPistons. He made $1.1 million last season.

Smith wanted to re-sign with the Philadelphia 76ers but received no interest at the start of free agency.
“He wanted to come back to Philly, but they never called him,” the source said.
Smith averaged 14.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 7.0 assists — starting 50 games, with the Sixers after coming over from the Pelicans.
